Music & lyrics by Vij Sodera

Ten men walking down the road
With sores on their face and hands
Ten men walking to see this Man
Each in their misery
Each man snared by his thoughts and deeds
Each man wanting to be set free
Each man with his leprosy
So standing at a distance they cry
Oh Lord, have mercy on me!

One man sits beside the road
No light seen in his eyes
He reaches out towards this Man
But they all ignore his cry
One man snared by his thoughts and deeds
One man wanting to be set free
One man blind but beginning to see
So standing at a distance he cries
Oh Lord, have mercy on me!

One woman weak and all alone
In the middle of the crowd
She pushes her way to see this Man
She’s hoping to touch His gown
One woman snared by her thoughts and deeds
One woman wanting to be set free
One woman bleeding eternally
So reaching out to touch Him she cries
Oh Lord, have mercy on me!

One man lies within the dark
No movement in his shroud
The brother of older sisters who
Cry and cry out loud
One Man weeps and shares their load
One Man gives his hand to hold
He says he won’t die ’til he grows old
So standing at a distance He cries
My brother, STAND UP,  COME ON OUT!

One Man speaks and heals the sick
Sets the people free
One Man touches the deaf and lame
Walks upon the sea
One Man teaches them what is true
One Man shows them what to do
Because this Man is the Presence of the future
So standing at a distance He cries out
I am with you ’til the end of the age!
